This is my first post on the forums but I've been reading quite a bit over the last month or two.
Edit: I thought I may as well update the first post to reflect what happens in other threads in this part of the forums.
I recently acquired a used custom tank that measures 900h x 450d x 600h mm (36x19x24) 68gl tank off a workmate. It held water during a test but I decided to add a little more silicone to ensure that things don't go awry when the tank is set up.
The Tank: 900x450x600mm (36x19x24in) 259L (68 Gallon) custom built marine aquarium that I got off someone I worked with. It held water during a test but I added more silicone to protect the seams.
Filter: Tidal 110
Heater: Ehiem Jager 200w
Hardscape: golden vine and locally quarried quartzite stone
Substrate: midnight pearl pea gravel
